Season Five Flash Teaser Released At SDCC

It’s San Diego Comic Con weekend, and as always, Saturday is the day for major media presentations. DC released trailers for Aquaman and Shazam today, and showed trailers for all of its CW superhero shows. You can see the teaser-trailer for The Flash series right here.

As you can see here, we get an old-school Flash ring in the teaser, and a very good look at young Nora Allen. She’s called XS, which is obviously a nod to Barry and Iris’ superhero granddaughter in the comics; here she’s their daughter (or at least says she is).

We also get an extended look at a villain, who is apparently Cicada. You may recall him as a villain from the Geoff Johns era, and he’s got his lightning-shaped knife in the teaser. He will be played by Chris Klein (American Pie) this season.

What did you think of the trailer? Did it catch your interest, and are you looking forward to Cicada or XS? Feel free to share your thoughts!

    I’m wondering if Nora/XS is replacing Dawn, or if there will still be the Tornado Twins but they also have Nora as a third child. And if they’re replacing Dawn with Nora, will they be replacing Don with Bart?

      Certainly Bart (and Jenni, for that matter) are much more well known than Dawn and Don, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the showrunners skip the Tornado Twins and just use Barry and Iris’ more famous grandkids instead. So we could be seeing Bart as another child someday, or maybe he’ll be Nora’s child…since we’re well into time travel and descendents already and we could easily meet him that way.
